Another award for ground-breaking technology created on Teesside


Billingham-based company Tracerco, which is part of Johnson Matthey Plc, has once again helped to put Teesside on the global map. Its ground breaking TRACERCO Profiler instrument has been awarded special recognition at a global trade conference held in the U.S.A.

The Profiler, was amongst fifteen drilling production technologies recognised at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston. It had already proved to be a national winner when it was last year awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.

Andy Hurst, managing director of Tracerco, said: “The products chosen are not only new and innovative but are also proven, promise to have a significant impact and are of a broad interest to the industry. Receiving this recognition is a wonderful accolade for the Tracerco team and proves once again that the region is a leading player in the global industry.”

The TRACERCO Profiler™, uses advanced measurement technology to accurately determine and control the contents of oil and gas production separators. It has been described as a unique and novel instrument that when inserted into a vessel determines, through precise measurements, the various phases present at any given time.
